Illustration Biography

I originally trained as an illustrator. I have worked on and off for 30+ years illustrating a broad range subjects as diverse as childrens books, packaging, editorials or bespoke commissions. My latest interest is in fashion illustration. I work in all types of media whether charcoals, colored pencil, oils or digital. I pick the media to suit the subject in hand. I originally trained under Tony Ross and David Hughes at Manchester Polytechnic in the early 80's. I dont illustrate full time at the moment and only take on part time work.

If you like any of my work or have a special project in mind please dont hesitate to get in touch?
